We may need to look at how any of the items dealing with mental health holds would be impacted by pending legislation.
Michael Sandvig
01:22:10
There are policies on the Idaho exchange that specifically exclude MH coverage.
Keisha Oxendine
01:23:57
I have to step out for just a moment.
Keith E. Davis, MD
01:27:38
I have a conflicting 2 PM meeting, sorry.
Keith E. Davis, MD
01:27:44
Very interesting, Dr. Fox!
Debbie Thomas
01:55:29
I will have to jump off at 3:30pm for another meeting. FYI
Nicole Fox, MD
01:58:26
apologies- some of our action items that are labeled treatment are actually infrastructure.

Mental Health parity / payment seems important to increasing the number of professionals in Idaho. If fees are a barrier to practice, not being paid is a bigger barrier to practice.
Adam Panitch
02:03:36
Toni, I think you'll see that provider reimbursement topic in Infrastructure #3
Nicole Fox, MD
02:10:15
If we are looking for specific, the word provider is vague. It is not clear if we mean therapist, psychiatrists, peer support, etc
Michael Sandvig
02:20:01
What Adrian said is what I am thinking
Lisa Growette Bostaph
02:26:45
Will anything need legislative approval?
Janice Fulkerson
02:34:50
So many needed services in the Behavioral Health area don't have an official CPT code - go unpaid. Or they are not paid at parity with physical medicine.
Michael Sandvig
02:35:35
. . . practices to provide competitive and fair reimbursement rates and processes that increases value-based services . .
Debbie Thomas
02:36:38
Janice - I see you just types the same thing I just said. Great minds think alike.
Michael Sandvig
02:43:49
Is MH parity a separate recommendation?
Michael Sandvig
02:44:20
Are we really talking about reimbursable codes and reimbursement rates?
Nicole Fox, MD
02:44:33
instead of enforce, what if we used the word "address"?
Kootenai Defender
02:46:05
I apologize but I have to step out early due to my court schedule today.
Nicole Fox, MD
02:47:08
Implement is a good choice. Softer, but direct.
Debbie Thomas
02:49:08
i am stepping out now. Great working with everyone!
Maggie Finnegan
02:51:07
To my knowledge, Telehealth is software. Like Bandaid vs adhesive strip. Virtual care or something might be better.
Maggie Finnegan
02:52:48
As soon as insurance no longer covers virtual services, providers won't offer them. At least that is what my provider is saying.
Toni Lawson
02:53:02
I agree. The terminology has been moving toward virtual care rather than tele...

02:55:31
Sorry, I have to step away for another meeting.
Toni Lawson
02:59:18
If you look at the telehealth council reccomendations, I think they had something very similar. You might be able to use some of their language as a model. It would be good to have some consistency there.

hi Folks,
Monty-IDJC
03:05:11

Monty-IDJC
03:06:32
yes....
Nicole Fox, MD
03:06:36
sounds good to me
Lisa Growette Bostaph
03:08:56
Identify a method for sharing critical data across agencies to facilitate care coordination.
Michael Sandvig
03:08:58
Later change #5 to care coordination instead of we would like . . .
Monty-IDJC
03:09:57
:)
Keisha Oxendine
03:10:03
We’re making great progress. I apologize but I have to jump off as I have a phone appointment in a couple minutes for an upcoming hearing.
Lisa Growette Bostaph
03:10:58
Yes and 3 years because it will require legislation as well
Lisa Growette Bostaph
03:11:52

Lisa Growette Bostaph

There seems to be a disconnect between the stated recommendation and the action items
Nicole Fox, MD
03:22:58
It seems like a subgroup could be a good use of resources and time.
Michael Sandvig
03:23:26
Sounds like Friday and Monday for subgroup meetings.
Michael Sandvig
03:25:15
The 20th meeting is 3 to 5. Should it be 1 to 5? Can that be done?
Eric Studebaker
03:28:08
I can join at 2
